Owner and guide, Dan Selby started Sydney Sportfishing Adventures in late 2010. He wanted to work in the fishing industry where he was actually on the water most days, becoming a fishing guide was a logical solution. His aim is to help clients improve their catches by advancing their knowledge and angling techniques on individual target species like the mighty Mulloway (Jewfish), Kingfish, Bream, Flathead, Estuary Perch and Bass. In this time Dan has helped thousands achieve their goals and personal bests’ whilst guiding.
Sydney Sportfishing Adventures is a one man operation based at Spencer NSW on the lower tidal reaches of the Hawkesbury River. The 5 meter, plate aluminium Centre console vessel ‘Me & Jew’ is transported on a trailer and allows your guide Dan to follow the best bites around the extensive waters of Sydney Harbour and the Hawkesbury River through the four seasons of the year. Clients can expect a fun, educational experience where actual fishing techniques are taught to benefit clients in their own personal fishing exploits, not just on charter.
Dan specialises in light tackle lure casting, trolling, down rigging and live baiting to catch trophy fish in Sydney’s busy water ways. A day on the water can help you improve casting, learn lure retrieval techniques, how to catch live baits, which knots to tie and when to use them, how to read a depth sounder/fish finder, where to find fish/ bait, how to use a down rigger and the ever crucial how to fight and land big fish on light tackle.
Fishing is fun for everyone, so whether your 8 or 80, beginner or experienced, Dan can help you learn how to pull in the big ones!
SSA operates full (8hrs) and half day (5hrs) fishing charters Monday to Friday on the Hawkesbury river and 6hr Sydney harbour trips Monday to Friday throughout Spring, Summer and Autumn each year.
